Locked In Syndrome: Imagine lying completely paralyzed yet fully conscious, but doctors and loved ones think you are a vegetable. The only way of telling people you are present, the blink of an eye. Lobster Claw Syndrome: Don Dahler reports on Ectrodactyly Syndrome, where people have missing or fused-together fingers and toes. The congenital deformity, which used be known as 'lobster claw syndrome,' has a 50/50 chance of being passed on genetically. An Against the Odds Italian Village: Jay Schadler reports on a tiny village in the Italian Alps where almost all of the 400 residents are related. Their cholesterol is sky-high, their blood sugar is off the charts, yet heart disease and diabetes are almost unknown. Doctors are trying to find out why.
